Voice IQ² and Spectral IQ Digital Technology

  • The Starkey® Line of products featuring Voice IQ² technology boasts the “best in industry” digital circuitry for unwanted background noise elimination.  Historically the background noise of restaurants, crowded environments, and wind noise presented major obstacles to hearing aid satisfaction.  These software and hardware circuit algorithms are the best available on the market and represent the product of hundreds of millions in research.  Below are a few examples of the circuitry in action.  It is recommended you wear earphones when listening to the samples for the best demonstration.

  • Dynamic Speech Compression is the active “shifting” of audible frequencies to more usable tones for the hearing aid wearer.  This allows the tones in the worst-hearing frequencies to be rebroadcast by the hearing aid into frequencies that are easier heard by the hearing aid user.  Compressing the frequencies this way allows for easier comprehension of speech.  It is a challenge to do this “on the fly” without significant distortion, but the Spectral IQ technology from Starket hits a home run!  It is recommended you wear earphones when listening to the samples for the best demonstration (this demo will be the most dramatic  for patients with typical higher-frequency hearing loss).
